Amur River, Khalanda channel, Dec 19, 2009

Air temp -20*C, almost no wind.  The cars are driving on the ice of the frozen Talga channel of Amur near Khabarovsk.  Everybody is in a hurry - the sun is rising; the pikes will start biting soon!

Amur pike with its black dots on cream background looks more like trout or salmon

Local fishermen catch pike with primitive selfmade rods and heavy lead lures - "crabs". The line is 0,6-0,8 mm mono.

Pike "crab" looks like a snagging device, but it is not one: the fish (mostly pike) are biting it, I swear! 

That day the biting of pike was quite good, but I was not lucky to catch really big ones.

One of my neighbors had landed a 6+ kg pike; one more bit off his line..

Nice trophy!  Smaller fish are about 1 kg.
